Xvid codec - 12/10/08 08:23 PM

I don't have any xvid files on hand... I'm in a Dallas hotel right now... but I was tweaking some stuff on my MBP and was in QT prefs and saw a link for 3rd party plug ins. I follow it to this page...

http://www.apple.com/quicktime/resources/components.html


and then to this page...


http://www.xvid.org/Downloads.15.0.html


Sorry, I'm a bit lost sometimes as to all of todays codecs.... but if here isn't a Xvid codec for OS X, why does Apple have a link to their site?


Is there an xvid codec for QT?

Okay, After reading NG's post I was trying to figure out why I could play xvid yet I don't have a plug in for it, I have Perian installed.

Sometimes the obvious escapes me.

Perian ROCKS ..it's so easily installed, updated, removed and it adds so much functionality it's usually one of the first things I install. That and Quicksilver.
